CUTTY RANKS GOES “INTERNATIONAL” WITH LATEST REMIX!

 Cutty Ranks—

VETERAN dancehall artist Cutty Ranks is making EDM waves, courtesy of English duo, Chase and Status.

The track, International, samples the deejay’s 1991 single The Stopper.

“It was great working with Chase and Status. They are signed to Universal, and they shot the video in London, a few months ago. Since the video came out, it has been doing well. Skrillex has also done a remix of International as well that is also doing well on several video platforms,” Cutty Ranks told the Jamaica Observer.

Formed in 2003, Chase & Status comprise London duo Saul Milton (Chase) and Will Kennard (Status).

“They approached me last year to do the song. They are fans of dancehall music, but they are into electronic crossover music, and very good at what they do,” Cutty Ranks said.

International, released in the latter part of 2014, is making the rounds on social media. A video on the VEVO platform has racked up over 1.3 million views.

This is not Cutty Ranks’ first EDM foray as he did a remix with Major Lazer a few years ago.

“I found out about it some time last year. It was a remix of one of the songs I did with John Dub, founder of London Fashion Records, which had produced songs like Limb by Limb and The Stopper in the ’90s,” he said.

Cutty Ranks (given name Philip Thomas) was born in Clarendon. He came to prominence in the late 1980s with songs like Gunman Lyrics. A decade later, he made it to the mainstream with The Stopper and Fly the Gate.
